Transitioning should be done package per package, when the person who is the most active maintaining the said package in the team is ready for that. I personnally feel like we would benefit from git transition for : - the most active and complicated packages (so, fontforge is a good candidate) - less active packages where upstream is using git for development (probably a few font packages are in such case) If would be useless for low-activity font packages where the current ultra-simple SVN layout is really enough. > > > Also if you need help in transition from svn to git count me in :) > > Thanks!

I am fine with transitioning fontforge to git. I already maintain a few packages (in the pkg-running team) where git is used and one of them is indeed even using upstream's git. I'm not yet completely comfortable with all this and I sometimes do mistakes, but nothing that can't be reverted..:-) So, that means a GO from my side. The only argument stopping this would be Kestutis (who maintained FF for quite a while and did a good job at maintaining the package alive) popping out and yelling that he's not comfortable at all with this transition.
